Rick 950 neck width

Postby (dcbirdman) » Mon Mar 02, 2020 7:00 pm

I started to look around for an Fireglo 950 from the 1965-75 period (very few in the 70s it seems) and there is not a 950 to be found anywhere except a '61 on Reverb.

I know all these had narrow necks but does anyone know the exact width right down to the 16/th" on 950s? I guess there was some variation over the years.

Has anyone ever been able to do a nut with slightly wider string spacing on these?
